The Best Selection

"Selection" Defined

At Cadence we define "selection" two different ways. 


Having a wide variety of choices is one kind of "selection". We stock more products than any other store in Upstate New York. Our inventory includes more than 50 drum sets, 80 snare drums, and over 300 cymbals on display. 


The other kind of "selection" involves carefully curating the best options for our customers. We thoroughly inspect products from all of our vendors for build and materials quality, and then asses the value of those products in the current market. If we feel that one item is a distinctly better offering in a particular category, that's what we carry. 


We fully understand that customers like options, and that they may not agree with our opinions. Customers also should understand that we cannot carry "everything" under one roof. For that reason, we are happy to special order any available product from any of our vendors if a customer chooses. 

Yes, we sell that.

Cadence is proud to carry products from every major drum brand, nearly every major cymbal brand, as well as tons of accessories and parts. 

The Best Value

"How can a small, local store compete with big chains and online retailers? "

The short answer: By being the biggest small store in the country. 


Almost every vendor in our industry has a "best net" - the lowest price any dealer pays for gear. We make sure that we meet whatever criteria we need to in order to buy every product at the best price. This allows us to offer products to our customers at the lowest possible price. 

"Price is what you pay, value is what you get".

Everyone likes to save money, but price isn't everything. Making sure that our customers get the best product they can at the best price possible is key. More important, though, is service before, during and after the sale. The combination of knowledge, price, and service is what makes Cadence Drums the best value.

The best prices, every day. No gimmicks.
